2005 Cobalt Sedan TURBO (Garrett Kit) - Crazy Sleeper - PRICE DROPPED!!!

Guys,
I am selling a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan (~78k miles). I took this car as a trade for my 1991 Eclipse GSX (heavily modded) hoping it would be easier to sell than the Eclipse, since it's running perfectly and is very reliable.

*** $5900 *** <--- Price drop: $5500 firm. I need her sold!

Location: near Atlanta (GA)

The car is currently on both Craigslist and eBay, but I wasn't sure if it was cool to post those links on here, so here goes the info...

This car is 5 speed and looks completely stock, however an expensive Garrett Turbo Kit ($3300 - link) was installed by an ASE certified mechanic. She's a blast to drive and pulls very hard, I had no idea these little things responded so well to forced induction!

This car looks completely stock, it is an amazing sleeper if you like to drive around without drawing attention to you but want to be able to pull hard on most cars you see on the street. The huge FMIC is almost impossible to see behind the front bumper, the exhaust is completely stock and very quiet and the boost gauge is hidden!!!

Besides the above mentioned Garrett Turbo Kit, this car has:
  • TurboXS Boost Controller
  • Custom Tuning done by Trifecta Performance (sent logs back and forth - link)
  • SPEC Stage 2+ clutch (link)
  • Custom Short Shifter
  • Forge BOV vented to atmosphere, sounds great (link)
  • SunPRO Boost Gauge - Lines runs off the manifold, very accurate
I believe that is it. All of this has 5k or less miles. Compression on the car was checked, perfect. Oil change done 3 weeks ago. Brake pads done last month. The power steering recall was performed already. Clutch has around 7-8k miles and grabs nicely, no slipping whatsoever.

The car is very clean and the interior has been shampoed completely. Looks and smells great. The exterior is in very good shape, some minor chips in the front (hardly visible unless you get very close) and a couple of minor dents, but overall looks very good. Rear tires practically new, front tires will need replacement soon. :laugh:

This car drives perfectly, is very quiet and ridiculously fast. Very reliable, perfect for daily driving.

KBB value for this car with these miles is right around $5000. Since the mods alone (not including labor) cost close to $5000, you can understand how the asking price is a steal.

Please email or text with any questions: 786-2oo-ThreeThreeTwoOne. Clear title in hand, she's ready to go.

just to clear some things up.

If it does not have a built motor...If it is holding 15 psi it wont for much longer.
I see the bov is going to atmosphere and the maf was not reloacted to the cold side meaning the car has to be running rich as hell.
and trifecta is not sending back and forth the ecu it is email data logging and tuning thro the obd2 port with uploaded tune files thro email
Also you are probably around 220 hp.

I have same kit with way more mods and hit 251 hp and 233 torque.

If i had 5900 i would buy the car right now. I dont mean to come off as an ******* just trying to clear somethings up so it may be easier to sell.

I am at 11 psi now and I am pushing my 2.2 pretty damn hard.

GOOD LUCK SELLING IT

Guys,
Thanks everyone for the bumps and the kind words.

just to clear some things up.

Thank you for commenting. I believe the 15psi setting is only for race gas. I have the boost controller set on low boost right now and she's pulling quite hard. As far as the Trifecta ECU shipping deal, perhaps I misunderstood the previous owner. He did mention going back and forth with the tuning, if Trifecta would be able to do this via email on this particular ECU, then that would be the way it was done.

I am sorry if there are some inaccuracies, I will email the previous owner and ask him to post on here to clarify anything. This car is legit, small description errors are bound to be made since I am transcribing all the information he gave me without knowing the platform very well.

Sorry guys, no videos that I know of.

Thanks for your interest,

-Walter

no problem and ya it is def a good boosted sleeper. wideband is a good idea for any new owner of this car. bc i see it doesnt have recircualting bov and it gotta be running rich.

glad you were able to clarify some information for us. I will spread the word on a good priced boosted balt

Actually it's not too bad, my DSM used to go much richer when vented. The rpms on this Cobalt might drop a little, but it never shuts off between shifts, even at low speed.

I do appreciate it.
